I just want to be heard

Each day I pray,

That my pain and sorrow will soon go away.

While agony of body and mind endure,

My spirit cries out, “Lord no more”,

I want to be heard.

 

I’m talking out loud right now,

And sometimes, my tone is too high.

My voice bothers some folks,

But Lord, I don’t care cause,

I want to be heard.

 

I pray that my disabilities diminish,

And comfort finds me.

Please guide me and see me,

I’m a troubled soul, forgive me,

I just want to be heard.

 

I’m saying these words of mine,

They are straight from my heart; my humanity.

I carry these troubles with me each day, Lord.

You know my hopes, dreams and wishes,

You know me; I just want to be heard.

 

I scream and shout for love,

Often a misguided desire.

Indeed, my personal torment,

And a deceitful reminder.

Are you listening, I want to be heard.

 

I pray, pray and pray,

You know how much I care,

I love my family and my friends,

They brightened each day.

I just want be heard.

 

I am here Lord,

My heart is good, “Help me”.

Lord, “it hurts”, “I hurt”,

The pain is deep,

Please, I just want to be heard.

 

I surrender, the challenge is too great.

I am yours and You mine.

Did you hear me?

Are you listening?

I just want to be heard.
